There is a story in Steve Parish's book where Rock Scully came into the dressing room with four Valium in his hand to pass out for the people in the room . Jerry jumped up and grabbed them all and swallowed them . They played an abbreviated first set because Jerry was to fucked up to play then pumped him full of coffee , black beauties and cocaine between sets and Jerry went out and played the second set .

Good stories for sure but in my opinion still pretty rare for a 30 year stint as a rock star.

I agree , it was an amazing career . I'm surprised that not just Jerry but the whole band didn't have more off nights

You would think that with all that drug use his health would have been affected.
